2 Replies and 12408 Views Randy Sluicing Cache Creek, Colorado - 10 Jul 15  12408  2 Started by Hey GPAA Gold Prospectors... Well, with the Arkansas River still flooding away.........on its way down slowly...........but still running over 1,200 CFS at the Granite gauge..........Cache Creek is the only game in town... So, I decided to get up early, try and do some sample panning and sample sluicing at a spot I saw several days back as I walked back to my Jeep from a day's 'hard fun' further down the valley. I arrived about 7AM, with only 1 other truck in the parking lot, with 2 guys unlo...

3 Replies and 8265 Views DIY Roll up sluice  8265  3 Started by A bit ago, I'd considered having some simple sluices created out of silicone so they could be rolled up and packed in to an area easily. Well, as always, someone else came up with a similar idea first but that's ok. This one is easier and even tho' this guy is selling them, it looks to me like a slit open corrugated plastic culvert so easy to DIY: Not a bad idea at all and some riffled matting could be added to a section of it wit...

2 Replies and 13430 Views The Riffle/Trap System  13430  2 Started by      All most all sluice boxes use a carpet or some form of ribbed matting or miners moss as the first trap in the sluice box.  The second trap may be expanded metal or a riffle system that goes over the top of the first trap and some might go expanded metal over the first trap with a riffle system over the expanded metal giving the sluice box 3 traps to stop and hold the gold.        The design and style of the riffle system is very important, for ...

I'm wanting to upgrade to a larger sluice so I can keep feeding it and not have to cleanout so much. I'm looking at the royal 54 wide flare model in the kit with everything to make it a recirculator or a high banker, does anyone have any experience with this. I like the brand and how they are 100 USA made seems pretty cheap as far as price goes compared to some other ...

19 Replies and 11269 Views Maybe New Sluice Box??  11269  19 Started by My son put this together in the shop where he works.  Could be the making of a good sluice box.  Need to make a spray bar, put in some carpet, expanded metal and some riffles.  A pump and some hose.  Also need to make some kind of stand.  It can be picked up with one hand and carried as it is.  The top part can be taken off.  It has expanded metal in it for classifying.  Any input on putting the rest together would be helpful.  Thanks

Between all the rain and snow we've been having here lately I hit the Arkansas River yesterday to see what the rain and snow melt was doing to the river level...  The USGS gauge up at Granite said 500 CFS, but further downriver at the GPAA claims at the old RR bridge it was obviously a bit higher... I guessed my favorite spot way downriver was now under water, so I decided to stay close to the bridge, did some sampling right below it on the North side.  Not ve...
